	Right. That reminds me - don't even think about trying to register a
python 'module'; we have to refer to a .py by name, the module path in
pythonloader.py seems totally dysfunctional, to the point of
uselessness. Any python genius that can tell me how:

	mod = __import__ ( "actual python-module-name" )
        implHelper = mod.__dict__.get( "g_ImplementationHelper" , None )

	is supposed to work, or indeed any half-way decent documentation on
what the object is that __import__ returns and by what I don't mean
floral vagueness but a concrete set of methods/properties and their
types that would let us find an internal variable definition ;-)
